Social Security has a seemingly endless list of disabilities that they recognize to be considered disabled by their standard. An easy way to take a look at the various disabilities Social Security recognizes is to look at the listings at Social Security's website. As discussed in the past, these listings do not necessarily represent every single disability possible for Social Security Disability; however, they do cover the vast majority of disabilities and break disabilities down into helpful categories. It also should be mentioned that the descriptions Social Security has for these listings is not necessarily required for you to be determined disabled. I urge you to read the blog post at www.scheidlerlaw.com or go to www.ssa.gov to learn more about how listings work in regards to your Social Security Disability claim.
Over the next month or so, Disability attorney Christopher Scheidler will break these categories down and describe how they may apply to your claim. Some of these listings are extremely common in Social Security Disability, and some are quite rare. If you have been denied disability, or are considering applying, do not to wait for a description of your disability. Time is very important for your Social Security Disability claim, so I urge you to call the Social Security Administration or a Social Security Disability lawyer as soon as possible.
